what is the head size of the premier domed ultra magnum .22 14.3 gr? is it 5.50mm 5.51mm 5.52mm or what?
The most important thing that you need to learn is poa (point of aim) and poi (point of impact) and how to make them come together on your target. Once you figure that out, you will find accuracy. Poi can change off your poa as the sun moves across the sky. If you do not know how to stay on top of it, your poi can change by 3/4 inches. Just a little tid-bit. Woodys World.
The head size is .22 caliber/5.5mm. What is it you do not understand? Knowing that will not make you a better shooter, Woodys World.
There are some souls out there weighing each pellet. You would think that they would also measure head size. Does it really matter that much? I am a true fan of Crosman Premiers, there is no better pellet. Made in the USA and packaged in red, white, and blue screw on tin tops. I have other brand pellets, but, I am no longer re-buying or buying pellets that are not in tins with screw on tops, regardless of what the reviewers say about them. Pyramyd Air is not at fault. Woodys World.
Crosman does not specify a head size for these pellets
i own a gamo wildcat whisper can anyone inform me on how these pellet perform with this air rifle
In the Gamo's I've shot they tend to work fairly well. Not as good as JSB though. But your mileage may vary
Why aren't these available in the box anymore?
I think you'd have to call the manufacture.
Anyone tried those in FX smooth twist barrels? How do those compare with JSBs?
No answer, but this very impressive shoot-out illustrates that it takes a PCP (and a very high quality one at that) to get into real pellet comparisons. Largely irrelevant to a Springer/Nitro/Break bbl, etc. except in very gross terms.

What is the head size of these pellets?
Oops. I now see your question. Head size, skirt size may be different. So, what does the nominal size on pkg. define?
My pkg. says "5.5 mm".
Anybody done a comparison w/ the Hollow Point?
Yes. In both my Benji 392 pump and my Benji Discovery the dome groups significantly better than the hollow point. In fact, this is the most accurate pellet tested in the disco. (Tested against 4 JSB's and two H&N's.
Are these the same pellet that is offered in the box of 625.
The boxed pellets are sorted by lot. That's the advantage. These are a hodgepodge, but there's not enough difference for me to pay the premium to bust rock squirrels.
The ones offered in the box are suppose to have less chance of being damaged in shipment because they are packaged in a box-therefore (more accurate) ?
